    RYA OFFSHORE SAILING.
    By Dick McClary. Paperback, 0.53kg, 170mm x 240mm, 176 pages, full colour illustrations.
    Offshore Sailing is exciting and brings adventure, discovery and freedom to those who undertake a long-distanced journey. For anyone who is going or thinking of going on such a passage, RYA Offshore Sailing is the essential companion.
    It discusses the fundamental characteristics of what does and what doesn’t make a good offshore cruising yacht and ensures that there is a perfect balance of practical information on safety, equipment, boat design and sails both for monohulls and multihulled boats. There is also excellent advice on how a skipper can make the journey as comfortable as possible for them and their crew. Chapters include:
  • Crew Comfort
  • Water Supply & Conservation
  • Preparing for the Tropics
  • Self-Steering
  • The Energy Equation It will appeal particularly to those planning to make an ocean crossing for the first time, either individually or as part of an organised rally. In doing so, it is likely that there will be a need to upgrade and equip the yacht to modern offshore standards for the voyage and to prepare it for the particular requirements of cruising in the tropics.
    Written by Dick McClary, a highly experienced sailor in many parts of the world’s waters, RYA Offshore Sailing is sure to fire the enthusiasm of anyone looking to head for the clear waters of the open ocean.
